Arrangements Disclosed
The ACO Board of Managers for Caravan Health ACO 31 LLC (“Board”) has formally determined the following arrangements are reasonably related to the purposes of the Medicare Shared Savings Program (“MSSP”), as required for use of the MSSP ACO Participation Waiver:
Participant Support Arrangements
Under the applicable Participant Agreements between the ACO and the Participants listed above, certain Participants are designated as Principal Participants and others are Non-Principal Participants.  Under the Service Agreements between each Participant and Caravan Health, Inc., the Principal Participants have agreed to pay for certain ACO-related expenses of the Non-Principal Participants in their respective regions, including management fees owed by each Non-Principal Participant.  In each case, the fees and other expenses paid by the Principal Participants on behalf of the Non-Principal Participants will be set in advance, will not vary based on the volume or value of any referrals between the Principal Participants and Non-Principal Participants (except to the extent such referrals indirectly contribute to the earning of shared savings or shared losses as applicable).
Through a formal resolution dated February 13, 2018, the Board determined that these arrangements are reasonably related to the purposes of the Medicare Shared Savings Program because they facilitate the participation of the Non-Principal Participants in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, which: i) promotes the accountability of Non-Principal Participants for the quality, cost, and overall care for a Medicare patient population as described in the Shared Savings Program; ii) promotes the management and coordination of care for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries attributed to Non-Principal Participants through an ACO; and iii) encourages investment in infrastructure and redesigned care processes for high quality and efficient service delivery for patients, including Medicare beneficiaries, served by Non-Principal Participants.
